Screening of the film “My Neighbor Adolf”

Dir. Leon Prudovsky, Israel / Poland / Colombia, ‘96

Colombia, 1960. Polsky (David Hayman), a lonely and grumpy Holocaust survivor, convinces himself that his new neighbor, a German man (Udo Kier) who has just moved to a house next door, is none other than Adolf Hitler. Not being taken seriously, he starts an independent investigation to prove his claim, but when the evidence still appears to be inconclusive, Polsky is forced to engage in a relationship with the enemy in order to obtain irrefutable proof.

“My Neighbor Adolf” is a moving comedy drama about facing one’s inner demons, uncovering dark mysteries, and the search for justice. Above all, it is a unique story portraying the easily blurred line between truth and fiction.

This screening of the film is the epilogue to the 9th edition of “The Space of an Image”, a series of films on Jewish themes.

The project was financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland from the Fund for Promoting Culture.

In English, German, Yiddish, and Spanish with subtitles in Polish.
Free admission.
